"If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun." Katharine Hepburn
On my desk at work. I find this motivational, because it reminds me that I can make my own choices, such as get the body of my dreams, instead of doing what others expect me to, which in this case would be to do nothing.

'I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!'---Dr. Seuss
"I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more luck I have." -- Thomas Jefferson
This is pasted on my fridge. I like this quote because it reminds me that I have a goal that I'm attempting to reach. If I take out the wrong thing from the fridge, I might stumble but that doesn't mean that I won't make the goal...I will just have to work HARDER to achieve it. It does not mention FAILURE which nobody likes to hear. LOL and as I'm a touch lazy the having to work harder than I already am is a very strong reminder to not take out the ice cream!

I am going to post it on my bathroom mirror so I see it first and last thing every day. Hmmm...maybe I'll even put it in my car and at my desk at work. It can apply to so many different situations.
Linda, I'm almost embarrassed to ask - What is the Abigail Van Buren quote?
